1985 Ford Escort XR3i



1985 Ford Escort XR3i

The original hot Ford most favoured by the middle, upper class speed merchants. Being involved with contract hire in the 1980's it may surprise you to know that in fact most XR3i's were driven by 30-40 year old middle management employees - supplied through contract hire companies such as ours.

Finished in black we've sold this example before and is on the market due to the untimely death of the owner.

The history includes many MOT certificates, receipts and most importantly the dealer pack and stamped service booklet.

Bearing in mind the natural wastage of XR3's, we believe this is a rare opportunity to purchase an extremely good example of an early model.

You are advised not to miss this one.

At this time we await the V5 and further instructions.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Thank you.
